The capital of the United States, the District of Columbia contains the lion's share of the country's most treasured monuments, memorials, and public museums.
You'll explore and learn at National Air and Space Museum and The National Archives Museum.

You'll find plenty of places to visit near Washington DC: Antietam National Battlefield (in Sharpsburg), Gettysburg (Shriver House Museum, Gettysburg National Cemetery, & more) and Little Library (in Vienna). And it doesn't end there: take an in-depth tour of National Museum of African American History and Culture, admire the masterpieces at National Gallery of Art, visit a coastal fixture at Calvert Marine Museum and Drum Point Lighthouse, and get to know the fascinating history of Capitol Hill.
